Clara made a bright opening and only for some great defending by the full back line of Oran, Aidan and Robbie Lynch and in particular Sean McGrath’s goal keeping skills, we could have found ourselves a goal or two down early on. Once we settled into the game, we began to dominate key positions. Midfield’s pairing of Frank and Michael soon got on top of things to send in good ball to our forwards. Substitutes Sean O’ Halloran, Keelan and Shane Hogan made a great impact on the team to help us get over the final line. Ben Young at full forward impressed scoring 2-1 to have his best game of the season so far, ably assisted by the young but skillful deadly duo Cormac and Ben Mc. We won this game on a score line of GBC 2-3 Clara 0-4. Scorers: Ben Young 2-1, Cormac Neary 0-1, Eoghan Cahil 0-1. Read more
Tom Ryall park was the venue for our Go Game Camogie Blitz this morning (7th August). We played 3 games Emeralds, Tullaroan and Windgap. The girls played some super Camogie showing great skill with superb scores, good defending and brilliant team work. Special word of thanks to our referees Kirsten & Brian.We would like to thank the parents in attendance for their support .
GBC continued where they left off in the last match with a brace of fine goals. The match was played in Tom Ryall Park on a perfect evening for hurling. The pitch was as always in perfect condition and a nice crowd cheering on the lads.
The first 10 minutes was a tense affair with both teams showing great hurling, tackling and hooking and it looked like it would be tough battle for the hour, but GBC started to settle down and played some really intelligent hurling. The movement from the two forward lines started to show promise and with it came a hat-trick of goals from Ben McEvoy. He was ably assisted by the hard working Michael Tynan at centre forward who is adding point scoring to his considerable goal threat and this bodes well for later in the year.
What a cracking first round tie. Goals, fantastic saves and more goals were the order of the day. Graigue raced into a 9 point lead through a hat trick of goals from Ben McEvoy at full forward. Shane Hogan saved 2 certain goals with saves that Eoin Murphy would be proud of. Piltown fought back well after the water break and scored three goals of their own. Some great defending in the last few minutes of the half from the full back line trio of Cian Ronan, Oran Hoyne and Sean O’Halloran and a goal from Michael Tynan for GBC left the score at 4-2 to 3-6 at half time.

On Saturday 21st November 2020 we lit a candle in our club grounds to remember the 14 innocent people who went to Croke Park on 21st November 1920 and never came home. They were killed when British Forces opened fire 10 minutes into a challenge match between Tipperary and Dublin. Hundreds of GAA Club across the country took part in remembering this sad occasion 100 years ago.
